7:29 the break down of the pocket 99s VS the sqeeze and the call was really good. I think this would be an unintuitive Fold for most players. but it should be a pure fold vs most MTT populations

Hey welcome back. I enjoyed the video. what advantages does poker scientist offer in comparison to GTO wizard?

Nov. 29, 2022 | 12:06 a.m.

The first word that comes to mind after watching the video is authentic. you really put your self out there. It felt like you were just having a conversation with us. you like some who has really done the work on them self.

The part that is most valuable to my game is when you talked about your heads up battle with player that you had an edge on. where you mentioned that you would just play and play. even when your A game was slipping. The tilt you talked about is very similar to something I am experiencing. I am NL50 6 Max player. The Site I play on is very small and very soft. The next game that always runs is NL200. When I play that game I still have an edge. but when it starts going bad I just keep playing when the table is soft. The problem is I am in that mindset where I think I deserve to win. And I am guessing when I do review of these session I am tilting in the same way you talked about. Being Passive not taking the spots I normally would.

Cheers Bro

When your talkin about not needing to balance until you get to high stakes. can you give me an example of spot where the Small Stakes community is trying to balance that absolutely should not be? sorry if this is a vague question.

Hey Josh when you mention being OOP with low SPR we need to give up with are dusty hands. what do you mean by that?

it was around 5:30

Nov. 22, 2022 | 12:37 a.m.

Hey time gambler one thing i want to point is that watching pro vs pro games is not going to help you win money at the tables. Your winrate at low stakes is going to come from the weak players.... cheers

Nov. 21, 2022 | 4:21 a.m.

Hey Lobo how long have you been playing cash? The good news with the minus 3bbs you are getting pretty close to being a winner. Meaning if you can just fix up a few leaks your winrate will go positive

Nov. 21, 2022 | 4:19 a.m.

K7 hand at 22:01 you say that your folding vs pot size bet. Where is the threshold that you would call vs an unknown in this pool. Meaning are you calling half pot on that river?


Nov. 21, 2022 | 4:11 a.m.

Hey Tarig. As a fellow ontario player what makes you choose party over say stars or 888. Have you tried all the sites. It seems to me that action in ontario is capped at nl200 for the most part would you agree?

Also are you able get your hands after for review on party?


Nov. 21, 2022 | 4:08 a.m.

Hey Franceesco I am enjoying the video. I agree with your core principles. For me personally i have always thought the more deepstacked we are the more important position is.

Nov. 21, 2022 | 2:55 a.m.

I am really enjoying this format. This making for a great series. I really appreciate you bringing us into your coaching sessions

Great post. Allot for me to chew on thanks.

Nov. 20, 2022 | 5:20 a.m.

Really enjoyed the vidoe Jericho. The first hand where you pointed how easy to be over calling in that spot. 3bet pot flop play is an area I personally need to put some study into

Hey buddy. Whats your goal with poker to make money become a professional? My recommendation would be to play low stakes online. This is the fast way to improve and get experience.

It depends how much money you have to invest in poker?

Where do you live. If you answer these questions it will be easier to give you advice

Hey i have same issue. I just snip pic and post it in the thread. Intrested if someone has a solution

Nov. 10, 2022 | 3:25 a.m.

At 3:06 you mention that low boards that contain a straight you generally use a half pot size. is that a simplification or is that solver preferred size? What size would you use if the board was more disconnected say 974?

Nov. 9, 2022 | 11:15 p.m.

He Linc i enjoyed the video. Especially the beginning when you talked about your different dtudy methods. What about playing some HUSNGs to get some hands. Or HU MTTs?

Nov. 9, 2022 | 3:20 a.m.

Deepsolver looks like a good alternative to Pio for players trying to build node locked strategies with out a powerful computer.

If your trying to Imply that expletive's poker is real. I cant go with you on that. the other day I was on the button looked at the SB AND BB both VPIP 17%
3bet 5% over 100 hands.

For a seconded I thought about opening wider but luckily I remembered GTO and opened my 42.5% on the button!

Cheers, please keep making videos

Hey final vision
Carrotcorner.com has some I cant speak to the quality of them. Snowie ranges are free and arent bad.


Nov. 7, 2022 | 2:49 a.m.

I appreciate your point about ATs hand when you talk about preflop solves as a poker player just because hand is a call at equilibrium does not mean its a call vs population if they are not playing an equilibrium strategy.

this goes for preflop and post flop

Nov. 5, 2022 | 3:09 a.m.

I guess doing some more analysis on the Flop of AT hand it is likely a fold vs flop bet. unless the pool is the Button is over bluffing here. do you think that's the case Paul? is this what you mean by bellow with your population analysis?

"I actually tend to overcall OOP a decent amount. If I look into my population analysis they floatbet 53% off the time and give up on the turn 47% off the turn. Basicly calling 1/3rd to have a high chance to steal the pot on the river or just realize my equity.

ATo might be too wide though. Having Ah would have been much better."

Nov. 5, 2022 | 2:39 a.m.

Hey bro how much do you think they have to be over stabing on flop for this A10o call on the flop to be profitable? I guess this is a reg heavy pool are we expecting that villains are not overbluffing in zoom $100

Nov. 5, 2022 | 2:25 a.m.

Hey Shaun I really enjoy the one table zoom format

Nov. 5, 2022 | 2:22 a.m.

Hey Stinger Enjoying the series so far. Where would your threshold be for calling on flop in the KTo hand in (3:01). I think 3/4 pot is right there vs a competent opponent. would you call a C-bet closer to pot size?

what do yo think of opponent's bet sizing. would you say opponent's in this game are under bluffing here? This seems to be a decent board for us equity wise. do you think its appropriate for villian to be betting bigger on this flop?

I have not played tournaments on ACR so I am guessing. but interested in your thoughts. Do you have any reads at this point or just the hands in Hud from the tournament?


Nov. 5, 2022 | 1:04 a.m.

Hey zizou I would recommend getting a subscription here if you dont already have one. What games do you play? GTO wizard is really good but expensive. It will depend what you want to learn?


Oct. 31, 2022 | 1:03 a.m.

Really solid post brother. Lots to think about. My mind is open both ways. I personally have a fulltime job that pays very well. So I could never join a CFP. even if I could reach NL1K with 4bb 100 win rate. My Job is far superior. No variance less stress then grinding my income in online poker and more income overall. The games in the long run are always getting tougher So its hard to predict future earnings in poker. (my personal view is games will still be good in 10 years) I think if someone is in there early 20s and can objectively see than they can reach High stakes then it would be worth it. As long as they are working on plan to diversify there income. I would recommend real estate investing (but that is a topic for another day)

As for me poker is my competitive outlet I treat It like a business. The money is not what's most important my results are. My graph is what matters to me. I am interested in hourly coaching but I feel it's hard to identify some one that is worth the cost. even though I can afford top level coaching I feel that If I spend 5k on coaching and win only 3k at NL50 I am down 2k for the year. I can only play about 150k hands a year. Maybe I am not thinking about this the best way for my goals

Either way thanks for the post I appreciate all that you put in to the RIO community


Oct. 30, 2022 | 4:57 p.m.

Thanks for the Video. I am NL player but I do sometimes like to Donk around in the 5 Card PL25 streets. I am going to review the rest of this series to build up 5 card preflop fundamentals

I will work on accepting soup in the world if you think it will help my mental game

I feel that My quitting skills are quite strong. it is something I have worked on for years and is most critical to win rate. when I move up to a higher limit is where my emotions get spiked and my quitting skills drop off some.

Comment | i-hate-soup commented on Consistency

High Chris this is timely advice for me. I get into a mode where I over study and bring to much information in with out absorbing it properly. The learn when to stop concepts are interesting, I will need think about it more.
Another piece of actionable advice that I am going to try is to breath when I am in handed and feel my mind might be clouded by emotion.

Thank you for the information
